Does anyone have information where I can find any of these ships? You can e-mail me at nkbeck@hotmail.com

I try to buy a model of each ship I sail on. They are normally in the gift shops and only cost $25.00 to $35.00 each. I am getting a nice collection of Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess and Celebrity ships.:D

 

This sounded like a great idea. I was looking forward to purchasing one on the Sapphire Princess a couple of weeks ago sailing to Mexico.

 

I was very disappointed. Not only that they did not have one, but they have nver heard of them. Actually, the entire Princess memorabilia area was very small and limited. I thought all the shops were this way and for a ship that holds 2,900 people, I was expecting more.

 

Any ideas where I might find a small'ish size model of the Sapphire Princess?

My husband and I went on our first cruise last year on the Grandeur of the Seas sadly he did not get a model of that cruise ship can anyone tell me where I can get a model of that ship? I called RC and they gave me an 800 number for the company that sells them on the ship but they said the only place to buy them is on the ship you are on.
I am looking for a Grandeur of the Seas model also..we went on the ship in December 2005 and the shop said that they had been out for 6 months...so please help me out of if anyone has one or is going soon and would be willing to bring me one back...also looking for Mariner one also

I am also looking for a model of the Grandeur. We sailed out of Baltimore and their inventory of everything (t-shirts, sweats, jewelry, etc.) was very low. I asked the attendent and she said they had not received any new stock in over a month. So...if anyone knows where I can get a model of the Granduer please keep me in mind. :confused: You can email me @ cnash56@yahoo.com

I purchased mine on ebay! Yippee! Had to pay a lot for it though. $60. Ouch. Husband said I don't care. Buy it. Just keep your eyes on ebay. Go to ebay at least twice a week and eventually I have seen all kinds of ships there. Good luck all. I am going on Celebrity's Summit in March will have to see what happens.:D

I've been collecting the models too. Like rsjc, I'm missing a couple of the early cruise ships that probably didn't even have models at that time.

 

If any one needs a model of RCCL's Splendour of the Seas or Princess's Coral Princess, I have one of each that I would sell for the original purchase price.

 

 

hi Raven , ineed both those ships . will purchase if you still have them pls do!

\ email me at bg911@aol.com thank you let me know one way or the other

Wow, this thead sure has staying power!!!

 

I posted on it last year about how I'd just found a model kit of the first ship I ever sailed on, the S.S. France. Well, over a year later, it's finally done (the build was not easy), and I'm now the proud owner of the below two foot long memory of childhood:

A few months ago, I also found (on eBay) a smaller scale model of the Italian Line Michelangelo. So my collection is slowly but surely growing!!

I do not have any models of the ships we've been on but believe this is something that perhaps we should start.

 

Anyway, your posts about the SS France piqued my interest. I couldn't help you with a model but I do have a book about her. I am not interested in selling it but just wanted to share some info about her with you.

 

We did not sail on her as the SS France but rather as the SS Norway. Our voyage on her is one of my most memorable cruises. What an elegant ship.

Hello

 

New to the site but making up for lost time! I also have collected models for all of the cruises that I have been on, great momento! Carnival did not sell one of the Holiday and I tracked one down on Ebay a few years ago. I'm sailing on the Valor in November and was wondering if anybody knows if they sell a model of the Valor on the ship. Thanks!

I was on the Carnival Valor in February 2005 and was able to buy one of the ship models in the gift shop. That made the seventh Carnival model for me! I will be on the Carnival Glory in May, so model number eight is coming home with me then.

:) We have Imagination model in stock and will have model of Grand Princess soon. You can email sansim555@msn.com for photos and detales.

 

 

All the models I have are about 8 to 10 inches. My mother-in-law bought one while on the Dawn Princess and it was very small. Around 5 to 6 inches. I hope Princess isn’t scaling them down because I’m going on the Grand in March.

Don't know if it's showing up in my signature, but the first ship I ever sailed on (back as a child in the 1960s) was the S.S. France (which was sold when the French Line closed in 1979 and subsequently became the Norway of the Norwegian Line, before going out of service in 2003 after a boiler room explosion; the ship is now laid up in Bremerhaven, Germany, future fate unclear).

 

I always wanted a model of the France, but couldn't find one until last year, when Glencoe models introduced a big, hugely detailed 1:450 scale plastic model kit of the ship (picture of kit attached). I've started working on it, and it's going to be a beautiful 22 inch long exhibit of wonderful memories when I'm done. Now if only some firm would produce a model of the Michelangelo....

There was an article in the paper about the France/Norway. She is being towed to India to be dismantled. There was a lot of buzz about it a few weeks ago (I think on the what happened to board) because environmentalists were protecting it's desmantling because of the asbestos it had.

I am looking for a ship's model of the " Sea Venture" from the Flagship Lines which became the first Pacific Princess. It was also the " Love Boat" on the television series of the same name. Can anyone help me?

This may sound like a stupid question but I have never cruised before and was wondering the ship models your refering to are they the kind you have to put together yourself or are the preassembled? I would love to collect them but don't wish to assemble them lol!!!:p
